We chose hotel intercontinental for its location and decor and we are happy with our decision.
We knew that we could get a better deal further from the city but we fell in love with the hotel so we knew what we were getting into.
Plus the wedding coordinator at the hotel seemed really sweet and professional.
I have got to say that she stayed professional throughout the planning but we both felt that she tried to impose limitations wherever she could!
Every little detail would cost extra (per person!)
Some things worth noting:
-The wedding cake was included in the package price and was very satisfactory! It probably wasn't the best possible wedding cake you could get but we found they did a good job!
-The suite at the hotel (included in the wedding package for the night of the wedding) is amazing! The only problem was I had my hairdresser coming there to do my hair and the hotel would not guarantee an early check in! The official check in time is 3pm! So 2 days before the wedding we were forced to pay for the extra night just so we'd be sure to have our room in the morning! I have to say though that they gave us the same suite for our preferential price which was at least 1/2 their advertised cost-so in the end it was a good deal!
-The tasting (usually scheduled a few months before the wedding date) was amazing! Very professional and lot's of fun!
-Be careful with rentals (linens, chairs, dishes, etc). The hotel would not place anything that came from outside! We had to pay extra for the chairs to be placed! On a side note, the chair covers from the hotel are $7.50+tax+service!!!
-If having reception outside (in la ruelle) the rentals (chairs, decorations, etc) need to be picked up right after the event is over! They cannot keep it till the next morning!
-Overall the food was good and enough!
Overall we are very pleased with our choice of the reception venue and would recommend it.
Excellent venue and the people are easy to work wth. We had the wedding in the atrium which was spectacular. Te food is great and they have alot of freebies for the wedding couple. Best decision we made!
